All script apps like forums or web stores store their data within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the website information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it runs on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with massive databases. Many popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.

MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our hosting will allow you to manage all your MySQL databases effortlessly.

You will be able to modify the password, remove a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your data. If you want to view the database content or edit any cell or table from the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be quite simple as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.
